Why Glamping?

“There comes a time when you’ve just got to go glamping” – Barny Lee



Camping is great, but everyone loves an upgrade!
Glamping allows you to be close to nature yet wake up refreshed and ready for action!

Camping with real mattresses!

Dry and spacious tents!


Glamping provides the perfect opportunity to relax and immerse yourself in the spirit of Badminton. Anticipate the thrill of tomorrow’s events whilst sleeping under the stars.



Experience the excitement of Badminton with approximately 150,000 spectators.  No commuting and more time to soak up the amazing atmosphere from your on site luxurious retreat.

Badminton and Glamping is a recipe for glamorous adventure. Just like other perfect combinations such as horse and rider, strawberries and cream, the two go hand in hand to provide the ultimate Badminton experience.



Rock up to our pre-pitched safari style sleeping structures on our perfectly positioned glamp site at Huntsmans Close. The Retreat has full luxury glamping facilities and is just minutes walk the course.

Just pack your case and check in at The Retreat for a glamping experience like no other.
You’ll have the perfect base to enjoy the eventing highlight of the year at our contained and secure site.



Camping comes with a few downsides, leaky tents, bumpy floors, pitching in the rain and inadequate washing facilities are common. Glamping sites offer a refreshing alternative.

When you arrive back from the competition in need of refreshment, enjoy a hot shower and a relaxed meal in the dining room then chill out in the bar with a glass of bubbles.



When bed time calls, sink into your cosy warm bed to dream the night away. Wake up fully refreshed, and make full use the pamper/dressing room before a proper cooked breakfast.

Buggy Transport

Shopped until you dropped at the tented village? Fear not, we will drive you and your bags home in comfort.


When fully recharged, head back to enjoy the world’s most prestigious three day event in style.

Watch the final stages of Badminton 2019 feeling completely energised! Glamping keeps you on top form!
